IMO our coaching staff takes the easy approach by switching as our primary defensive approach to screens and PNR.We need to be able to switch on defense. Length is key to this upcoming season IMO. Our offense will be good no matter what but this coaching staff can't figure out ball screen defense unless we can switch
I would prefer if the staff focus on defenders fighting through ball screens. Better communication and help from teammates is crucial to execution of an elite half court defense. Developing a mental & physical toughness on the defensive side is the first priority.
Even if a team effectively switches positions 1-4, a good opposing coach is going to create a matchup mismatch with the 5.
Once guys become adept at fighting through screens, post hedging- then introduce automatically switching as another defensive technique.
